the texas senate race in which the tea party has been strong again. what impact do you think it's having in virginia this time around? >> i was the beneficiary in 2009 before there was an official tea party. i was with chris christie in new jersey. with that enthusiasm in '09, president obama won by 7 there and i won by 18 the next year. we saw the rise of the tea party maybe without a name but they were engaged. they wanted to help restore federalism. it was a push back against the dramatic overreach of the obama administration. when they should have been focused on jobs and the economy and energy and leadership, they focused on reforming healthcare and bureaucratic takeovers and for government recommendation. just the opposite what mitt romney will do for the country starting in january of next year. i see them engaged in a dramatic way. you see in the policy recently about a 23% swing in intensity. and dana, i feel it on the ground in virginia. the workers, we've made a million calls in the last three months. a number of offices open. people want to work. because they still believe in
states, including texas and florida. that could mean four million fewer people would qualify for medicaid. governors in eight other states have also said they leaning toward opting out. health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius said today she has received letters from a dozen governors who support another part of the law- - the creation of the insurance exchanges that allow consumers to compare health plans. but the medicaid expansion remains an expensive sore spot for others. in nevada, we turn to jon ralston, political columnist, the "las vegas sun." in texas, to emily ramshaw, editor of the "texas tribune," and here with an overview in washington, to margot sanger- katz, health care correspondent for "national journal." march go, i want to start with you. give us a sense in general about what this resistance is about, who is resisting and why. >> i think there are two main reasons why we're seeing resistance from governors, one i think is political. they don't like the health care reform law, they have made arguments against it all along and this is a way of rejecting it an

-fil-a controversy even holding a campaign event at a chick-fil-a yesterday. the lt. governor of texas is in a neck and neck battle with the tea party candidate, ted cruz. and we had ted cruz on the show year. today it is david's turn. first, the chick-fil-a campaign event. how did it go? >>guest: well, i thought it went awfully well. the bottom line is, i happen to believe that marriage is between one man and one woman. it's clear, eric, in the scriptures, which are most important thing to me. so it was with no hesitation when i first came in, and i'm a life-long businessman. i still run my business. when i came in on a part-time job as lt. governor, one one ofe first things i passed was defense of marriage. marriage is between one man and one woman. and the next session i came back and made an amendment to the texas constitution. i'm in, money, marble and caucus. >>eric: now, the race with ted cruz. you originally had beaten him in a race, in an election, but not by enough, wide enough margin that it did not require a run off so this is a run off. but it seems like mr. cruz is now taking the lead
now, states have a ton of leeway to decide who is and who isn't eligible for medicaid. texas, the they only cover adults at 26% of the poverty line. it's $11,170 a year. so you could be a single person making $3,000 a year and you're not poor enough to qualify for medicaid. that's part of the reason texas has the highest uninsured rate in the entire nation. in massachusetts, by contrast, they cover working adults up to 133% of the poverty level. this is due to a former governor whose name rhymed with smitt sromney. everyone making up to 133% of the poverty line, they get medicaid automatically. right now, the federal government pays about 57% of medicaid's costs. states pick up the rest. and that's a good enough deal that every single state participates. in the affordable care act for the first three acts, the feds will cover 100% of the difference between wherever the state is now and where the law wants them to go 100%. after 2020, that drops a bit, but only drops to 90%. for every dollar the state puts in, the feds will put in $9. it's an incredible deal. the less you have

[laughter] "america live" starts right now. megyn: fox news alert on a telling new poll that shows americans believe president obama has changed this country as he campaigned and promised that he would to back in -- would do back in 2008, but not as many had hoped. welcome to "america live," i'm megyn kelly. a new polling question is shaking up the campaign today. first, the hill asked people if they believed the president has changed the country. 68% said, yes, he has. and when they were asked how, the results not good news. 56% of voters believe that during the first three years of the obama administration the president has changed america in a negative way, for the worse. 35% believe the country has changed for the better. one in five democrats believes the president has changed the country for the worse. chris stirewalt is our fox news digital politics editor and host of "power play" on foxnews.com. so there
to the democratic line. john is from texas. john, go ahead. caller: i think these votes are a waste of time. these republicans have done a pretty good job of bringing every negative aspect of this bill to the public. as far as the farm bill and the food stamp program, it will never get past the senate and will never be signed into law by the presence of the united states. you are wasting your time on this nonsense until after the election. they will not be in town for the rest of the year anyway. host: windchills do you think they should be working on him -- which bills do think they should be working on? caller: i think we should get out of afghanistan. host: this was from cbs news yesterday. a tally fund that a republican repeal effort has taken up his 80 hours or two fuld weeks since 2010. -- taken up 80 out worse horn at two fuld weeks -- hours or two full weeks on the floor of the house. we have another caller. caller: the votes are not a waste of time. it highlights the disparities between the 8 parties on health care. what we democrats -- the guilty parties on health care. what the d
